Looking back at Decatur's initial Sculpture Walk, Mayor John Schultz remains excited about the experience and its future.
"Wow! What a great event the first Decatur Sculpture Walk opening turned out to be," the mayor said recently. "Being the first attempt at such an endeavor, you really don’t know how the event will actually turn out.

INDIANAPOLIS—The 40th annual state football tournament hosted by the Indianapolis Colts held its sectional pairings show over the weekend featuring the placement of all 315 football teams (63 in each class).

WATERLOO—As the nursery rhyme goes, "Down came the rain and washed the Barons out" on Friday night as the Braves came into town and dominated DeKalb with the rushing game in a downpour, 34-6.
